Not only is chocolate delicious, there are several health benefits!

From author Darnell Hawkins written on the Livestrong website, we found this great article on the benefits of Chocolate.

Here is a quick recap:

  • Chocolate contains flavonoids, which act as antioxidants. Antioxidants protect the body from cellular damage
  • Consumption of dark chocolate may help lower blood pressure.
  • Dark chocolate has more health benefits. Milk chocolate may actually interfere with chocolate’s antioxidant properties, making it less healthy
  • Remember not to over indulge because a chocolate candy bar contains a lot of calories
